CubicFarm Systems Corp. announced the sale of three control rooms to agtech company Terramera yesterday.

Each CubicFarms control room is assembled inside a proprietary stainless steel, fully insulated growing chamber with the option to customize features such as lighting, automated irrigation and nutrient delivery, providing full climate control for temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide levels. The system has a variety of sensors available, all of which can be remotely monitored and controlled.

CubicFarms offered its control room system for sale to growers in June.

Dr. Travis Good, Terramera’s Chief Technology Officer commented, “We required a closed space with precise controls to isolate each environmental variable and produce uniform, plentiful and high-quality plants for our research.”

Based in Pitt Meadosw, BC, CubicFarms is also known for their patented CubicFarms system for growing leafy greens and other indoor crops. Using a unique, undulating-path growing system, the system is said to significantly reduce the need for physical labour and energy, and maximize yield per cubic foot.

CubicFarms CEO Dave Dinesen commented, “We are pleased to call Terramera a customer as we share the same strategic investor, Ospraie Ag Science, and vision to transform how food is grown with the use of leading-edge technology. Terramera is a natural fit for a synergistic partnership in the future as both companies look to develop our machine learning and AI capabilities to further advance our respective technologies.”
